Reverse 911 Emergency Communications
The Wasatch County Emergency Management Department and Sheriff’s Office will be able to alert residents about fires, floods, toxic environmental issues and other emergencies using reverse 911 technologies provided by Everbridge. Alert messages can be sent to residents on almost any communication path desired – cell phone, home phone, email, text messaging, and more – ensuring that residents and County staff receive life-saving emergency information and important public service announcements in minutes.
Only residents with listed land-based phone lines will be automatically subscribed to receive alerts. These alerts will arrive via their listed phone lines. Residents with or without land-based phone lines may self-register for alerts using our web-based registration portal and provide Wasatch County with their desired alert communication path. This alert communication path includes options for desired communication methods (home phones, mobile phones, email addresses, txt messaging, etc) and prioritizing the order in which these communication paths are used. Any resident of Wasatch County may self-register, provide additional contact information, or opt out of the system. While Wasatch County is providing the reverse 911 service and the self-registration portal, responsibility for signing up and maintaining up to date contact information is the responsibility of the resident.
Future reverse 911 enhancements will include being able to sign up for community (non-emergency) alerts and information. Signing up for these alerts will be voluntary.
At least twice a year, the Wasatch County Sheriff’s Office will test the alert system to assure performance and allow residents to become familiar with the system and how it functions. We will make these dates know via the County’s website so you will know when to expect these “test” alerts. If you do not receive these test alerts, we do not know how to contact you and we strongly encourage you to self-register and provide us a communication path for how best to supply your family with valuable and timely emergency information.
